The year-round hummers are mellow and co-operative.

We have oak groves full of all sorts of birds including droves of Acorn Woodpeckers in their smart red pope caps.

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without words
And never stops at all.” (Emily Dickinson)
Cheers to you from your Holler feathered friends~

“This is the land the sunset washes,

Where it rose, or whither it rushes,

These are the western mystery!” Emily Dickinson

We get some nice sunsets at The Holler.

Probably due to the sun setting over the ocean and the lack of ambient light pollution.
